Date Wed, 08 Feb 2017 14:33:41 GMT
Raphaël Ouazana created JAMES-1930:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Handle IMAP authentication delegation
                 Key: JAMES-1930
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1930
             Project: James Server
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: IMAPServer
            Reporter: Raphaël Ouazana


IMAP allows to delegate authentication through the AUTHENTICATION PLAIN mechanism.
An admin user can authenticate with its password and then can be authorized to be an other
user.
See RFC 4616.
The protocol part of this RFC is already handled into IMAP, but we need a way to define an
administrator into the configuration and to check that permission.
